Charmuri/Masal Mandakki

*************************************************************


Charmuri/Masal Mandakki


This is a street food of my home town Mangalore. Charmuri/Masal Mandakki, 'Charmuri' means 'Mumra/Puffed Rice' in local language of Mangalore "Tulu", 'Mandakki' is Kannada word for 'Mumra/Puffed Rice'.

This is a street food you can find any where in Mangalore, its famous during the festival fair, specially like Dasara or Shivratri fair. I used to eat it all the occation specially returning back from the temple Charmuri and ice cream was a must :) !!
Its very simple and easy chat. This is made with coconut oil, which gives a special taste to the chat.. But i used peanut oil as here i cant find coconut oil for cooking :( !!
This is my entry to Sia - Monsoon Spice, for MPB - Street Food event. Thank you for the wonderful event and for extending the days :)!!. Really enjoyed participating.
